On June 13, 2003, I wrote:

I told my mom that Karine and I were together and that I was pretty certain that she was the One. It's the first time since Cindy that my mom knows anything about my love-life. So I'm very happy that I managed to bring it up. She was totally supportive and said she just wanted me to be happy and find my other half.


It's funny reading over things like that. I remember that conversation with my mom vividly. I'd been trying to build up the courage to bring it up, knowing it had been years since we'd really discussed my sexuality. Remembering that all conversations prior to that had left me feeling disappointed at best, angry at worst. I made a point to talk around it after that. But this was different. This thing with K was different, and I needed her to know about it.

I still remember that for at least a year after that conversation in PR (in which she truly was supportive, regardless of her feelings), she still referred to Karine as "that girl" or "the french girl" in our conversations. Not rudely. She wasn't trying to hurt me. Still, I remember that the first time she called Karine by her name, I cried. It's the little things that signal change; that tell you things will be okay.

K and I get to spend the week leading up to our 14 year anniversary an ocean apart, and I suppose that's kind of fitting in a way. Her in the US. Me in France. We still very much hate being apart.

I went back to May 1, 2003 to see what I'd written in my LJ, but I wrote nothing that day. Our real anniversary -- the day we really, truly, officially "got together" was June 1. But on May 1, K told me she was in love with me, and even if she refused to label us ("long distance relationships aren't real" etc), I knew we were inevitable.

Fourteen years. And I'm still a sappy mess.

My mom arrives in a little over two weeks from now, and I'm looking forward to a visit free of wedding stress, and lack of proper furniture. I'm looking forward to having her around for three weeks, though it never feels like enough time.

Distance. My eternal nemesis.

I watched the first three episodes of The Handmaid's Tale and it creeped me the hell out. It feels a little too real for comfort these days. But as unsettled as I am by it, I'm still really enjoying it. Can't wait for more episodes.

Caught up on Billions, and I'm so into it. It's been a great second season so far, and the addition of Taylor Mason's character has been my favorite part. Their relationship with Bobby is awesome, and I dig it so much. Also Taylor/Wendy scenes are my crack. All my favorite brilliant minds together. <3

I meant to write more in here, but I just realized I'm starving. So, off to eat.

I finally found a Mac client that works with Dreamwidth. It's not quite Semagic (or what I remember of Semagic), but close enough. Happiness abounds.

K's in South Carolina this week, which means Poe and I have been partying it up. It's been a wild time so far: binge-watching Billions, drinking (smoothies) ... binge-watching Billions. And occasionally even reading. Honestly not sure how the neighbors haven't called the cops yet. But the week is young.

I'd been waiting 84 years for the Supergirl 2.19 promo, and now that I saw it I'm just freaking out. Though to be honest, what stresses me out most is that I have zero trust in the writers when it comes to their treatment of Maggie. I trust them with Sanvers (at least this season). But I don't trust them to let Maggie shine, or kick ass, or be in the right, or be a hero of any kind. And that distrust makes me incapable of getting excited for fear of being disappointed. So I'm hoping to be proved wrong on Monday.

I didn't watch 2.18, and I don't plan to. I'm skipping 2.20, as well, since, once again, no Maggie. So, that leaves me with three more episodes for the season that I hope to enjoy. Fingers crossed.

The Handmaid's Tale premieres on Hulu tomorrow, and I still haven't figured out if I'll be able to access it, so I should probably get on that. I have no idea if Hulu works like Netflix where they release all the episodes at once, or if it's a weekly thing. Guess I'll find out.

I've moved on to another Sanvers fanfic, and I'm enjoying it so far. I'm trying not to read too fast because it's unfinished and I'm not sure what I'll read afterwards. Feels like there's not enough Sanvers fanfic out there. Maybe I've grown too picky in my old age.

It's raining today. It's been raining all day, and I don't much mind. Means it's pretty quiet outside, and I like it when it's quiet. Poe doesn't seem to mind too much either.

Back to the party.

Latest Kindle Highlight:

"I can't believe that!" said Alice.

"Can't you?" the Queen said in a pitying tone. "Try again: draw a long breath, and shut your eyes."

Alice laughed. "There's no used trying," she said. "One can't believe impossible things."

"I dare say you haven't had much practice," said the Queen. "When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."

I figure if I try to write in here every day I’ll remember how to do this. 
 
Right? 
 
Right.
 
I was reading this Sanvers fanfic last night, and it’s really good, but really angsty and now my heart hurts. Also, it’s unfinished and I don’t know what I’ll do with myself if it doesn’t get an update soon. Like, not to sound dramatic or anything, but I may die from impatience, and then be forced to resurrect myself just to check if there’s been an update, and then die all over again if it there isn’t one. Over and over again. Forever.
 
I’ve been reading a lot lately, which is good. I hadn’t really been reading for a long time, and even when I did, I couldn’t finish anything I started. 
 
Reading list so far, with some of my Kindle Highlights:
 
Get Your Sh*t Together by Sarah Knight
 
Apparently the only thing I highlighted in the entire book was: “Letting go of things you can’t control is a huge part of the mental decluttering process.”  
 
A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle
 
"Physicists have discovered that the apparent solidity of matter is an illusion created by our senses. This includes the physical body, which we perceive and think of as form, but 99.99 % of which is actually empty space. This is how vast the space is between the atoms compared to their size, and there is as much space again within each atom. The physical body is no more than a misperception of who you are. In many ways, it is a microcosmic version of outer space."
 
Stillness Speaks by Eckhart Tolle 
 
"Prejudice of any kind implies that you are identified with the thinking mind. It means you don't see the other human being anymore, but only your own concept of that human being. To reduce the aliveness of another human being to a concept is already a form of violence."
 
I also finished a fairly short book titled The Kybalion: A Study of the Hermetic Philosophy of Ancient Egypt and Greece
 
And last night (after reaching the To Be Continued of my angsty Sanvers fanfic) I started You Are the Universe by Deepak Chopra and Menas C. Kafatos, which I’m enjoying so far. 
 
“The speed of light had been calculated at 186,000 miles per second, but Einstein felt that light contained something quite mysterious that hadn’t been discovered. What he wanted to know was not the properties of light or what light was like as a physicist studied it, but what the experience of riding a beam of light would be like.” 
 
I discovered the other day that I have a lot of Kindle books in my library I haven’t read yet, and then I promptly ignored that fact and ran off to buy more. 
 
It’s almost 4pm and I’ve done zero of the things I was supposed to do today. Well, I wrote here. I guess that’s something.

It feels both very strange and very cool to be back to writing in this LJ-esque environment. Mostly weird. I feel a bit displaced in time. 

I’d been thinking for a while — years, even — that I missed LiveJournal, but apparently not enough to go back to it. It just didn’t feel the same. But moving here feels like a fresh start, and I’m all about fresh starts these days, even if this fresh start feels more like traveling back to a previous decade. 

Everything’s about reboots lately anyway, though, so I suppose it works out. 

Meuporg

France brings the funnies today. During a newscast about video game addiction, a French journalist brought up the subject of - what else? - but the EEEEEVIL that is MMORPGs. Of course, he decided to give it a colorful spin by pronouncing it, "MEUPORG," and then going on to say that that's how you say it. Mostly because he didn't know what the hell he was talking about. So all the geeks of France are now making fun of him. So much so that the channel that broadcasted the news thing went ahead and purchased the keyword "meuporg."

dreams3x: (Default)
Finally got around to watching this movie. I think the monster attacking Manhattan was the least unbelievable part of the film. Yeah, sure the special effects were good - I guess. Nothing in it made me go "wow," though. It was sort of like if the aliens from Alien suddenly went, "Hey, we should get some I <3 NY t-shirts and decided to ransack the place while they were there." And that guy behind the camera. Holy crap was he annoying! I kept wanting him to die just so he'd shut the fuck up. The others weren't any better.

I will sum it up:

SPOILERS FOR THE WHOLE ENTIRE MOVIERead more... )

The end.

... I wrote, and for the first time in months, I felt like I was actually writing, instead ripping words from my skull and forcing them onto the screen. Creatively, the past few months have sucked. I have lost track of how many stories I started and left unfinished. Working on TBSOL wasn't happening at all. But today I wrote, and though I wrote yesterday, too, today I actually felt good about what I'd written. I feel, finally, like I really can finish this novel. I hadn't felt that way in a long time.

Moving on...

There are travel plans in the air. I am not sure how many of them will actually happen, but over the next few months K and I may or may not be visiting the following places:

- London (or the Netherlands)
- Florida
- Puerto Rico
- North Carolina
- Paris
- Turkey

It sort of feels like announcing tour dates.

And now I'm off to dinner ... nomnom.

Okay, so for my birthday I totally danced around to Lady Gaga and put on my Ratatouille hat. Unfortunately, I couldn't find my cape. So I had to improvise with my totally awesome cloak-like bathrobe.

Yes, I have pictures. I'm sure I'm going to regret this one day )

I'm actually keeping up with American Idol for the first time since season 2 (GOLILLYSCOTTDIDIBENAMICRYSTALBOWERSOCKSSIOBHANMAGNUS). But here in la France we've got Nouvelle Star, as well. Unfortunately, I've missed the first two episodes because I forgot last week and tonight I was too busy playing with my new TV to sit still on any one show/movie/game for more than a few minutes at a time.

I finally got around to setting up the media file sharing on the PS3. I could've done it before, but shows/movies looked nicer on my HD computer monitor than on the TV we had so it wasn't worth it. But now it's definitely worth it. Chuck on the big screen. HELL YEAH.

I think on my birthday we'll just be watching stuff. K's making me chili. I love chili. It's the one day of the year where K says we can watch whatever I want and I like to take full advantage of that.

BITCH SLAP IN HD...ooh. Actually, I don't have Bitch Slap in HD... hmm... must find... That would be cooterlicious.

Also, I do intend to put on my cape and my Ratatouille chef hat and dance around the living room to Lady Gaga. I tweeted/facebooked (has that become a verb yet?) that I was going to do this. I just need to find my cape.

K took off Monday so we could properly celebrate the big 3-0 over the weekend. Not sure what we're going to be doing. Probably watching TV. LOL.

Speaking of which, time to watch The Big Bang Theory. Sheldon/Penny need to get together like yesterday.

And....whoa

K just came home with my birthday present ... which I was totally NOT EXPECTING. I thought she was getting me some PS3 games or something.



And I'm not sure how I'm gonna top a 40" HDTV when it comes time for her birthday. I think I will have to import an elephant from India. She loves elephants. Good thing I have until August to plan how I will get it into the apartment.

But OMGANHDTVFLATSCREENOMG. I nearly had a heart attack when I saw it.

I shall continue my squeeing in private.

So, today is my last day as a 20-something year old.

30.

The number makes me feel like I'm old. I don't feel old, though. I suspect I'll still be feeling "not old" when I'm 80. Assuming global warming hasn't killed us all by then.

But I guess I'm not young, either. And that's okay.

The past 30 years have treated me well, and while there's lots of things I still want to do and accomplish, there's lots of things I can check off my life's to-do list.

Here's 30 of them in no order of importance or occurence :

1. I've fallen in and out of love
2. Had my heart broken
3. Lost faith in God
4. Found faith in God
5. Thought life wasn't worth it
6. Found many reasons why it is
7. Learned a second language
8. Met the girl of my dreams
9. Dropped everything and moved to a different continent
10. Learned a third language
11. Walked among the ancient ruins of Greece
12. Published a book
13. Befriended a lot of awesome people
14. Rode on a rollercoaster (and almost passed out afterwards)
15. Made pumpkin pie from scratch
16. Sat by the ocean in Portugal and read a book
17. Got so drunk I threw up
18. Rode on a golf cart around the Amsterdam airport
19.Marched in a women's rights parade in Washington, DC
20.Told my parents I was gay
21.Walked around the Louvre in Paris
22.Competed in a state-wide acting competition
23.Drank wine in Bordeaux
24. Visited the Museum of Sex in New York
25.Acted in TV commercials for Kodak
26.Graduated from college
27.Beat [livejournal.com profile] chewy3479 in three eating competitions
28.Directed a few plays
29.Worked as a coat check girl at a gay club
30.Became legally not-single

Mostly I'm just grateful. Even on days when I feel like I have no idea what I'm doing with myself or my life, I still feel incredibly lucky to have the things I have and know the people I know and be with the woman I'm with.

I know I'm a different person at 30 than I was at 20, and I like to think that I've changed for the better. I'm looking forward to the next 30 years.

Bring it on.

So, let's see. Feeling aimless has kicked me into productivity mode or at least what passes as productivity when you're a blogger/writer.

Today I unveiled the new look on Midnight Island: Official Site of Moi. I'd been wanting to do something very simple for a while now but hadn't found a theme that matched my needs, so I kept going for the flashy and exuberant instead. And that was all well and good. But I really, really wanted something that highlighted the fact that this is my official, writerly website. I think I managed to pull off something to that effect. Maybe. Hopefully.

Aside from the asthetic changes, I also deleted all the blog posts that were there before. I did so for a couple of reasons: 1. I don't blog there with any amount of frequency or consistency and that made the site appear ghost-townish, and 2. I wanted to showcase the rest of the content by removing all the random posts that had nothing to do with anything. I think this was a good idea.

I would like to have a blog area eventually. Or maybe I'll just link to this one like used to do. I'm still debating.

What else...

The past couple of days were spent in Vichy. We took a train up at 6AM on Monday and came back yesterday afternoon. Lea had to have some tests done at the hospital and needed someone to drive her home/stay with her just in case. So that was our Monday and Tuesday.

Today, I blogged at Grey's News. Worked on Midnight Island. Ate spaghetti. Remembered (after once again forgetting) that I have that Facebook page with "fans" on it. So I posted there.

In other news: I worked on TBSOL today. I think I am finally, finally unstuck. Join me in a dorky dance. /dorkydance I still have no ETA but baby steps toward THE END. I will not be posting Chapter 49 until Chapter 50 is complete. So when you get it, you'll get the whole shebang. So, expect it sometime in the year 2021 or so.

I kid. It should go up by 2015 AT THE LATEST.

I kid again.

Maybe.

I don't know why Facebook keeps putting pictures of things like PIES and DONUTS on the sidebar. Meanie. I want pie.

Anyway.

I'm really into Robin/Katherine on Desperate Housewives which means they're doomed. So doomed.

Okay, I'm off.

Boof.

He-MAN!

In going through old LJ archives, I found an email that [livejournal.com profile] chewy3479 sent out to the library crew:

HE-MAN!
And the Masters of the Rutgers University Library System!

I am Yuhwei, Prince of Alexandria Library, defender of the secrets of Castle Collection Services.
This is Andrew, my fearless friend.

Fabulous secret powers were revealed to me the day I held aloft my magic Workflows ID and said:
"By the power of Collection Services!"

HE-MAN!

"I have the power!"

Andrew became the mighty Battle Gov Docs Cataloger.
And I became He-Man, the most powerful man in the Rutgers University Library System.

Only three others (and the plumens) share this secret.
Our friends, the Receiving Coordinator Sorceress (Julie), Binder at Arms (Ian)
and Processor Orko (Ingrid)

Together we defend Castle Collection Services from the evil forces of Salvatore-letor.

HE-MAN!

hehehe!

Ah, the good old days.

It's starting to feel a lot like a "blah" kind of day, and I'm trying to stop it from getting there. I desperately don't want to be blah today. Blah or meh or anything ending in "eh."

Last night I got caught up on the German TV series Marienhof, which is essentially about a bakery owner that goes into business with this French woman that sells chocolates. And then they fall for each other. But the owner has a boyfriend and so she's all emo. And that makes the lesbian emo. And then everyone's emo.

Last night I also chatted for a while with the lovely [livejournal.com profile] punrufie and after years of being out of touch, we managed to catch up by discussing gingerbread man porn, Yoda porn, Snuggles porn and ice skating.

It all started when I found this book in which a woman has sex with a gingerbread man cookie. Synopsis:

Meet Marisa, a restless homemaker who spends her time baking, masturbating and dabbling in magic. Happily married, Marisa only wishes her husband Don could keep up with her insatiable need for sex. She craves orgasms daily and her sex drive has become a sore spot in an otherwise happy marriage.

Determined to find a solution to ramp up Don's libido, she turns to magic. After trying magical amulets and oils, Marisa discovers a book that contains wish spells. Throwing caution to the wind, she decides to experiment with an incantation that could make her naughty gingerbread man cookie a real flesh and blood man.

Taken by surprise . . . literally, Marisa indulges in a delicious sexual rendezvous that ends up going further than she could have ever imagined. This delightfully sexy tale offers up hot thrills sure to please any sweet tooth!







The review of the book at Dear Author is made of win. Review is rated R for naughty nibble language.

I also challenged [livejournal.com profile] dangerosa to write erotic fiction using the following premise:

Who:  a Cherry Poptart that magically converts itself into a hot werewolf with wings and feathers
What: Dreamscape butt secks
With: An emo, misunderstood girl
Where: a castle in Germany

So I'm really looking forward to that masterpiece.

If you missed it, the full Robin/Katherine section of the latest Desperate Housewives is now up on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UUVyeOg8Nt8

I posted a couple of pictures of Jessica Capshaw (Arizona on Grey's) that are worth looking at because they're hot and also because she's in a bubble bath in one of them. My guess is that Callie is somewhere under the bubbles.
dreams3x: (Default)
I have to say, Desperate Housewives made me squee really loudly when I unexpectedly saw Julie Benz in an episode. Then they sort of blew my mind when they revealed that she'd be playing a lesbian. As much as I loved Dexter/Rita I couldn't really stop my mind from secretly shipping Rita/Debra.

So this whole business of Robin-is-a-lesbian on DH is YAY. Not sure how I feel about Robin/Katherine yet but I'm sure it will win me over soon enough. And because I'm a true cynic I expect this relationship to go absolutely nowhere. NOWHERE. However, I liked that they made Robin a "card-carrying" lesbian. I thought they were just gonna do the whole two-straight-girls-that-suddenly-find-themselves-attracted-to-each-other thing, which NEVER WORKS. EVER.

Can't wait for her to come out to Wisteria Lane... Heee. Thought last night's episode was pure win.

Anyway.

Last night (or rather, this morning) I had a dream in which I was on a ship, sailing the high seas in search of ... chocolate. But I'd only steal it from women wearing glasses. And eventually I was challenged to some sort of duel via poll in which people had to decide who should get the chocolate - Evil Pirate Me, or Good Girl with Glasses. Good Girl with Glasses won the poll. And then this committee of Chocolate Ownership people came to ensure that I didn't steal any chocolate. And then I was forbidden from ever stealing chocolate again. DAMN YOU, STUPID POLL.

I'm off to stare at TBSOL some more ... neverevereverevergonnafinishthisnovelomg.

I'm scarily addicted to the Mamma Mia soundtrack. I can't get any of these songs out of my head.

I can't tell if I'm sleepy or not.

I'm addicted to rice cakes.

This is obviously not a very well-thought-out, cohesive LJ entry.

Hmm. Perhaps non of them are ever well-thought-out, cohesive LJ entries.

Pusinky (that Czech lesbian movie) was surprisingly entertaining. I had no idea what was going on for the first 15 minutes or so, but then it got going.

Mini Review:

It's About: ... actually I'm not sure what it's about. There's these three friends who decide to go on this hitchhiking trip ... to Holland? Except they end up right back where they started at the end so I'm not sure why they went hitchhiking for the whole movie. But anyway... one of the girls is in love with one of the other girls ... and um ... nevermind, I'm just going to copy and paste someone else's plot summary:

Three 18-year-old coeds (Petra Nesvacilova, Sandra Novakova, Marie Dolezalova) decide a road trip to Holland is in order on the late-summer eve of more adult endeavors. Tagging along is one of the girls' kid brother (Oldrich Hajlich), who bears witness to nude bathing, Sapphic experimentation and various identity crises. "Nobody's keeping an eye on anybody," is their oft-repeated mantra, with various heartaches explained by the eternally adolescent logic, "Everything's screwy anyway."


So it's essentially not about anything. But it was still surprisingly not awful.

Expect to find: emo girls, drunk girls, lesbian bathroom sex, naked girls and lots of reasons not to ever, ever go hitchhiking.

Anyway.

I unexpectedly found myself back in WoW over the weekend which was actually quite fun. Ran [livejournal.com profile] 4youreyesonly, [livejournal.com profile] southland28 and Molly through a couple of lowbie instances last night, while simultaneously chatting with [livejournal.com profile] ceilyn_rm and [livejournal.com profile] dangerosa about randomness. Earlier today, K and I visited a bunch of Elders for the Lunar Festival. Tonight I went raiding with [livejournal.com profile] dracmtt and his guild and then went on a random dungeon with [livejournal.com profile] chewy3479, [livejournal.com profile] inthekeyofc and Phalk. So, fun all around.

I just took this "Gay-o-Meter" test again (I took it a few years ago). I seem to have gotten about 13% gayer over the years. However, I still got:

"Dreams is 36% Gay: How does a straight acting girl ever manage to get a date? Any more girlie and you'd have to be straight!


I'm not that girlie. *mumbles*

I posted a poll yesterday at GreysNews asking people what their favorite Grey's pairing is (besides MerDer) and I was pleasantly surprised to find that Callie/Arizona were winning by a landslide. However, overnight, the Cristina/Owen fans seem to have found the poll because they're catching up!

Anyway... I just remembered I haven't yet watched the latest Venice. So I'm off!
dreams3x: (claitchen - tied up)
So, over the past few days I've been trying to figure out what - exactly - I want out of this life of mine. The answer, after much contemplation, meditation and self-analysis is that I still have no idea. I'll figure it out someday, I'm sure. When I'm 90 or so I'll probably wake up one day and go, "AH-HAH!" But in the meantime, there is today and tomorrow and all the days inbetween now and the Ultimate Epiphany.

b5media terminated its contract with, not only me, but the entire entertainment section of its network. Without warning, they let go 50+ writers and shut us out of all our blogs. It's rumored that they will let go of the 150+ more that remain. All content has been refunneled to a new website called Crushable which will pick up where we left off and tackle the world of entertainment from all angles. Onwards, upwards and good luck.

I am not part of this new venture, but I still have a Grey's twitter account (@greysnews) with almost 5000 followers. It seemed stupid to let that go to waste, so today I launched Grey'sNews.com (http://www.greysnews.com) to take the place of the now defunct Grey's Anatomy News. It's kind of cool to have it all to myself. Sure, I won't be making much - if any - money from it, but I'm gonna keep on keeping on until it's no longer fun. So feel free to drop by - and please pardon the mess. I spent all day trying to get it ready for public viewing but it was a rushed job so ...

Anyway.

Whenever I feel aimless like this I have a tendency to want to do too many things at once. I buy 5 domains with 500 different ideas for 5000 different things I want to do. I start one project and another project. I announce to the world that I'm going to do X, Y and Z and then conquer the world in the process. And in the end I don't do anything and I get depressed at my lack of productivity. I'm getting old - or at least, older - so I'm aiming for more self-awareness. I'm giving it a shot, anyway.

I've narrowed my goals over the next few months down to the following three things:

1. Work on GreysNews and see if it's worth the investment in time/energy/money
2. Work on TBSOL and hopefully finish it once and for all
3. Sign up for a French course (a.k.a. go back to school) and get out of the apartment more

And then we'll just go from there...

So, the other night I watched a lesbian movie called Eloïse, which was actually not terrible. It wasn't wonderful, but it wasn't terrible. It was, however, unnecessarily depressing. But it wasn't as OMGWTF as something like El Niño Pez, which I did not enjoy at all. I'd summarize Eloïse thusly: cute girls, artsy, not-too-wtf, nekkidness, endingfail.

If I get a chance, tonight I might watch this other lesbian movie called Pusinky. The title makes me giggle, but I expect the film to a) bore me b) make me go omgwtf and/or c) depress me. And still I watch. Why? I know not.
